Two Religious Schools in Alberta May Lose Funding

Two Religious Schools in Alberta May Lose Funding After Rejecting L...
by Hemant Mehta
After the Alberta Education Minister announced new LGBT-inclusive guidelines for the upcoming school year, religious leaders of two publicly funded schools announced they would not comply with the rules. There's now talk about how their funding from the government should be revoked.

Our Government in the UK are doing the opposite they are allowing more faith schools to open.

Good for Alberta.

My small city has several faith based schools, which seems odd for the size of this place, but we seldom hear anything about them.

The most we ever heard about were the catholic residential schools for the aboriginal kids who were taken away from their families, & they are long gone.

If the churches want to open schools that's their business, but why should the state pay for them.

Exactly.

The Tory government has always supported the idea that the Church of England should run schools, but they've got themselves into a bind because the anti discrimination laws say what's good for one religion is good for all. Which means if you allow one religious group, say the Christians you have to let the Muslims and the Jews and even the scientologists and other whacky sects. All state aided. They are too cowardly to drew back from this concept.

This is one, or many reasons the 'Founding Fathers of the U.S. enacted "Seperation of Church and State."

Neo-liberals who sell everything shouldn't be in office.

Schools shouldn't be for sale, schools should be part of the 'commons.'
